Description:

Alternative title: Is This the Way You Want It to Be? ... Get Involved!! Announces: HSSMC meetings every "Thursday in the University Unitarian Church at 68th St. and 35th Ave. N.E., at 7:30 PM." Quote from document: "This is no time for consensus government. It is a time for leadership. The average citizen doesn't know what the stakes are in Vietnam. --Richard Nixon" Quote from document: "It became necessary to destroy the village in order to save it." --Anonymous officer commenting on the destruction of Ben Tre, South Vietnam, 1968 Background information: "The battle for Ben Tre was not much different from countless other struggles during the Vietnam War, except for the famous quote of an American major when asked by journalist Peter Arnett to justify the indiscriminate use of explosives. His remark, 'It became necessary to destroy the town in order to save it,' was widely quoted in the world press and became a symbol, to antiwar activists, of the bankruptcy of U.S. policy in Southeast Asia." (Olson, J.S. (Ed.). (1988). Dictionary of the Vietnam War. New York: Greenwood Press. p. 39)
